9. When Mia Wallace orders her $5 shake at Jack Rabbit Slims, the waiter (Steve Buscemi) asks her if she wants it "Martin and Lewis or Amos and Andy?" He's referring to the comedy duo of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, two white guys and The Amos n' Andy Show, two black guys. Basically, he's asking her if she'd like chocolate or vanilla. What gives, no Pryor and Wilder shake?

Because it was a 1950s-themed restaurant, you knob; a reference to Richard Pryor or Gene Wilder wouldn't make sense. She'd have to order a Sinatra and Sammy Davis (or a Lena Horne).

Lucksbane: Really?  Felt the need to explain the "secret meaning" behind "Amos and Andy" and "Martin and Lewis"?  Good lord.


I won't lie, I never knew what it meant until reading TFA.

cyberspacedout: After Butch gets hit by Wallace's car, the actress who tells him what happened is Melanie Griffiths.


Not sure if serious...

It was Kathy Griffin.

Plus Wallace gets hit by the car Butch was driving.

skinink: 11) Jules' "Bacon rant" could piss off people if used in bacon threads and someone has never heard it before.


It only bothers me because it's completely wrong. Pigs aren't naturally "filthy". They only exist that way because that's how humans tend to keep them.

Just curious, and I'm not being facetious, but have you not heard of "Amos and Andy" and/or "Martin and Lewis"?  Sometimes I don't think I'm that old, but then reality hits me in the mouth.


I've heard the names Amos and Andy before, but never knew who they were talking about. I know who Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis are, but I've never heard to them referred to as "Martin and Lewis", I've always heard their full names when they were referenced.

12. John Travolta was known for his dance moves prior to Pulp Fiction with his roles in Saturday Night Fever and Grease, but his dance number with Uma Thurman at Jack Rabbit Slims was inspired by the films Bande à Part and Federico Fellini's 8 1/2.

Wasn't it the Batusi?

Can we just cut out the middle man and start green-lighting IMDb trivia pages?

The couple later divorced, but Hibbert went on to work as a writer for Mad TV and Boy Meets World. It's nice to know the Gimp finally got out of the sex dungeon and turned his life around.


He later became a doctor and moved to Springfield.
